Water Quality Report Information

Every year at this time we provide all of our water users with a water quality report for the previous year.  The report contains important information about the source and quality of our drinking water.  This year, instead of mailing a paper copy to each residence in the Borough, we are providing the information on our website which you may access by clicking here.  However if you still wish to have a copy mailed to you, please call the water department at 610-374-8273, option 1 and we will be happy to send one out.
